ODESSA - Odessa Police on the hunt for a man who tried to kidnap a student.

A 15-year-old girl was on the way to school when she says a man tried to grab her.

Police say the attempted kidnapping happened in the 1100 block of N. Sam Houston around 8:15a.m. Tuesday morning.   

The teen told officers a man in a white pickup grabbed her and tried to force her into his truck.

She managed to escape his grasp and ran to her school.

That's where she told a counselor what happened.

The teen wasn't hurt.

The suspect is described as a white man in his mid-20's or 30's. He's about six feet tall, 200 pounds with blonde hair. The suspect was wearing a gray shirt and blue jeans. The teen described them as work-style clothing.

If you have any information, call Odessa Crimestoppers at 333-TIPS.
